Hi Bambi ! Very lovely
Oh yes, this was my darling! She got bio goat milk with a teat bottle (see other pic) and her fav fruit was watermelon! And she loved flowers especially Petunia! In February she was killed by two unattended dogs who somehow managed it to get over the rather high fence! :-(((((
I imagine how sad you might have been after this.
Yep, I was really deseprate. It's now more than half a year since this happend and slowly I can at least write about it. I mean it was an animal and all over the world are a lot more terrible things going on but she was such a cutie watching every step of mine, waiting at the gate for us to come home and when she sped up in the garden a real pleasure to watch. But now I stop my lament!
Have a nice day, Sonny
Derlei zu lesen macht richtig betroffen !...
Wunderschön fotografiert!, herzliche Grüße, Manfred
Danke, das ist gaaaanz lieb! So richtig bin ich noch immer nicht drüber weg. Hab Unmengen Fotos, was wiederum auch zwei Seiten hat. Ganz liebe Grüße, Sonny
Mein kleines tiernarrisches Enkelschatzi hat tsagt: "Opa kannst Du mir das Rehlein-Baby bitte mitbringen, weil dann könnten wir immer zusammen spielen..."
Ach ja, da werd' auch gleich wieder traurig. Die kleinen Kinder können es ja auch gar nicht verstehen, dass es nix zum Spielen ist. Musste die ganze Nachbarschaft dauernd abwimmeln. Wie alle Babies brauchen auch die Viecherln hauptsächlich Ruhe. Ich kann aber für dein Enkerl gerne noch ein paar Fotos heraussuchen!
Au Yahh. Danke
Die anderen hier hast du eh schon gesehen, oder?
Greeting Sonny, How did you come by this cute little guy? She is so beautiful. In Colorado it is illegal to have a pet deer. The deer in Rocky Mountain National Park are the most endangered by the elk that eat all the food that's available. The deer that are there are wary of the human folk and stay clear. When I worked for the forest service some 35 years ago I worked in a lookout tower and and on my way to work one morning I saw a fawn flop to the ground. I went over to get a closer look, not to close, and what a sweety. Sorry to hear she came to a tragic end. Hope my deer lifted your heart a bit.
Well, Rich, it's not allowed here as well since any deer is property of the hunters - except for a good reason. And the reason was that the mother had not come back for more than two days. The babies start crying of hunger loudly after more than 12 hours. When I heard it first I thought it was a bird! After a whole long day the little one crying next to my fence I realized what it was and had to make a decision - pick it up or let it starve. I knew that the mother wouldn't have accepted it anymore after I had touched it once and that from then on I would be the mother. And it worked out very well since it was already about 7-10 days old and not actually new-born. Fortunately it was a female since the males become very agressive against everyone and everything. For half a year she got goat milk what is most similar to deer milk and afterwards there is excellent deer food you can buy (The hunters take good care to get pretty trophies - NO JOKE, that is the reason printed on the adverts for the food!) Next to those pellets she acted like your elks!LOL My garden was a mess and when I had scared her away from one petunia she got a way to get the next one - flup! Rosebuds - flup! No blossom was safe!LOL Her favourite fruit was water melon - she got one half every day until October when the stuff got really expensive! I had built a little house for her and a fence around the pool. She got along with the cats very well and was, except for the flower thing, absolutely uncomplicated. She was watching every step of mine and following me everywhere. When I came home she was waiting behind the garden door. Once a day she got her crazy 15 minutes running and jumping big eights through the whole garden. The end was a shock and I'm still sad and furious but until then I think she had as good a time as possible without her real mother. Needless to say I have some hundred pics and tons of videos. To have this animal in the garden had definitely been something special. Got to pack the whole story onto my homepage one day. Oh my, this ended up being a real book! When you've come so far - thanks for reading!LOL And thanks again for your nice words concerning my pics! Got to check more of yours now! Cheers, Sonny
Deer Sonny, What a wonderful story. I am glad you were able to take the little one in for the time she had. It was a much better use of her energy than the initial option. Think of all the plastic and silk flowers you would have had to purchase and plant next spring!!! Thanks again for your story. It will make a wonderful web page one day when you get the chance to share your story with all the others.
Sonny, I red the whole, very, very sad story. If I would show it to my girlfriend, she would cry for sure, so I don't. I hope you can come to terms with it and can work the whole experience into a story (or a short movie!) and a lasting memory of this lovely creature with it's black velvet eyes.
I wish you all the best,
Hi Sonny. I read the complete story too and I can't help but feeling sad about it. Luckily, as you pointed out as well, she seemed to have had a very good time in your garden without her mother. Cheers, Christophe
Thanks Christophe, I know I was lamenting a lot but she really was something special! :-)
Hey! Was für ein traumhaftes Bild, einfach nur süß! Ich liebe Tiere ja sowieso! GELBER STERN!!!
Vielen Dank Anja :-))))) Hab noch einige Bilder von dem Reh hier hochgeladen - ist leider letzlich eine ziemlich traurige Geschichte - hab' es aufgezogen und es wurde dann von unbeaufsichtigten Hunden gerissen (auf meinem komplett eingezäunten Grundstück!)
Liebe Grüße, Sonny
